Gran Canaria Excursions and tours

The Blue Canarias helicopter excursion will take you over the south of the island where you get a bird's eye view of some fascinating geological features. You will even find an excursion that will impart to you, information on the Ancient Guanche people of Gran Canaria.

You can take an excursion to the capital city, Las Palmas, to the centre of the island where you will find Roque Nublo and many marine excursions that take you out onto the sea. There is even an organised shopping excursion.

So, is it a bird or a plane? could it be a tour, or an excursion? From all the information we have gathered, the answer seems to be it could be either. What we have done with the Excursion section of the website, is viewed an excursion as an organised trip to one place of interest or activity. we have treated tours as organised trips taking you through various places of interest and with more than one stop on the tour. For more information on the companies offering the tours, all you need to do is visit the tours page. You will find listed, different tours that are on offer and a company name and contact telephone number for you to be able to book your tour or excursion. On this page you will find a list of some of the other excursions available on Gran Canaria, that don´t quite fit into some of other groups in this section.
